Challenges: We didn’t face too many challenges, since the programme was built with full understanding of the infrastructure available in the country. We had taken into account the issues related to internet bandwidth, accessibility to technology and technology adeptness of the teachers. Some teachers were really averse to using new technology. In their case we started a well designed training programme, during which these teachers were introduced to the digital solutions. Eventually a majority of the teachers were able to understand that technology can play a seminal role in classrooms.
